Report Manager: Repository Does Not Retain Storage Location After Upgrade to R12.1.2 or R12.1.3 (Doc ID 1288943.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Report Manager - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After upgrade from 12.0.4 to 12.1.3 the Use last folder location on FSG report submission is not being updated.

This is shown via the following steps that can be replicated:
Navigate to FSG report submission via Report manager
enter report name, period
next
use default template
next to storage location
use last is shown as Reports Repository > Example > 2010 > 10 . Oct > Example Flash Report Oct YTD
or option to select new
select new is selected
open reports repository directory (expand it)
open Example subdirectory (expand it)
select existing directory - example Custom Folder *****
enter report name Flash Rep (report selected to publish is FSG report named Example Flash Report  (for period 12-10))

next
create a menu item - unchecked
next
submit
close this window
go to applications view request
see requests have completed without error

Navigate now back to the report manager menu - Submit Financial Report
Select same report Example Flash Report for submission again (same period), same exact submission parameters.

Location use last is Reports Repository > Example > 2010 > 10 . Oct > Example Flash Report Oct YTD
the new directory that was submitted during the last publish is not reflected in this directory.

Expection is that the last directory and report name used be shown as the use last option which is not occurring - this is not being updated.

Business Impact - Have to choose manually the directory each time instead of the one step submission to allow the over write or an existing FSG file.
Workaround - to manually select the folder and report name (slower process)

Changes

Upgrade to 12.1.2 or higher.
